Scones & Tea: Autographed Book Giveaway




New from TeaTime Magazine comes a delightful new book that is certain to become a tea table classic: Scones & Tea. The book features 101 scone recipes -- presented with full-color photography and beautiful vignettes -- and suggested tea pairings. The introduction explains, "We hope that as you sip our recommendations, you'll discover a new favorite tea and that as you sample the many flavorful scone options herein, you'll discover a treasure trove of delightful additions to your tea table." With such enticing scone flavors as Salted Caramel, Ambrosia and White Chocolate-Macadamia Nut Drop, tea lovers are certain to prize this collection of recipes.


Scones & Tea features contributions from a dozen tea rooms around the United States, along with information about each establishment. TeaTime Editor Lorna Reeves visited featured tea room Smith-Byrd House in Prattville, Ala., last weekend to sign copies of the book. I was out of town, but Joe and Christian graciously went in my stead to pick up copies. And, of course, we picked up a copy for one of you!

Sadly I've only been to two tea rooms and they've both closed. I really liked Trish's Tea Room when it was open. Not easy to find in Orlando. :(

Melissa, I love to take my friends to "Myrtle's Tea House" in Ridgefield, WA. The lovely lady that owns the Tea House named it after her grandmother. She uses grandma's wonderful recipes and some of her grandmother's dishes.

Also, my friend and I host a Ladies Spring Tea at our Church.

Our little village doesn't have a tea room, nor is there one for miles...So my favorite place to have a cozy cup of tea is with dear friends in their lovely homes. I do have a "pick up where you left off" friend in Prattville, and have just been pondering if this next year will be the one to finally go visit...Smith-Bird will definetly be on the list of things to do.
Blessings!

I have been lucky enough to have High Tea at the Pump Room in Bath, England. It was so elegant! Just a few streets over is also Sally Lunn's which is very yummy! Here in Chattanooga we are have The English Rose right across from the Chattanooga Choo Choo. I love going there not only for their delicous scones, but also their Steak Pies. Delish! You can also buy some British delights in their shop. It's a great place to visit if you're in the area.

My 6 year old daughter and I love the teahouse, "Paris in a Teacup" in Old Town Orange California. It is wonderful!!!! It is very elegant yet comfortable and the food and service are great! The first time we went, there was a mix-up about our reservation and at the end of our visit the owner came to our table with a gift bag containing full-sized containers of each of the two teas we had tried that day. She was so sweet and kind about the whole thing!

Growing up, tea was a large part of my childhood. My mother and I frequented Central Perc in Dayton, Ohio, a small tearoom owned by a charming British couple. Although my parents have since moved from Ohio and I am attending graduate school in London (don't even get me started on tea in London!), every time we return to Dayton, we stop for afternoon tea at Central Perc. My mother and I cherish this time together.

The Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, Calif. has a very very nice tea for special occasions. I love making scones - that recipe book looks spectacular!

I have never been at Tea Room and I don't think there is any over here. But I would love to win this book and try new recipes for my own tea time.

I love The Garden Tea Room in Dallas, TX.

There was a lovely little tea room in Florida, outside of Lake Alfred, connected with an antique shop, The Barn. You could have tea and a "sweet" (or savory) or enjoy a lovely lunch. My friends and I enjoyed it immensely on our days off.

I have never visited a tea room. I am from Pennsylvania. But I am intrigued and would love to host a tea at home. This would make a wonderful go to book for it.

I loved going to the J. Henry Manor Tea house in San Luis Obispo until it closed a couple of years ago. The best scones I've ever had, and I lived in Ireland!Now our only option is The Tea Cozy in Cambria, which I haven't been to much yet.

I enjoy a tea room in Frankfort, KY called Miss Ramey's tea room. I haven't been there in years, but I have great memories of going with my mother and sister.

Our town doesn't have a tea room, but there is a wonderful tea room in Mount Dora called the Windsor Rose.

I have never had tea in the US. I have had tea at a lovely tea room in Windsor, England in the shadow of Windsor Castle. It is said that this particular tea room was the home of one of the Kings mistresses way back when and there is a tunnel in the basement from the tea room to the castle. The tea was lovely with Earl Grey Tea and Watercress Sandwiches and lovely tiny scones and muffins. One of my most memorable occasions while in England.
